Our book fair is here!
This weekend we reflect on what we are thankful for and enjoy our time with family, plentiful food and good cheer. Let’s also take a moment to think of those who are not as fortunate. On Monday, November 19th begins AmPark’s Annual Food Drive in support of our local community.
From November 19 – December 7 you can help support POTS – a local food pantry.
Please have your children bring your food donations to their teachers or classrooms. There will be a class competition! The top two winning classes will receive a special surprise!
Items Most Needed:
- Canned fruit and vegetables
- Dry and canned beans
- Canned meats (i.e. tuna, chicken, ham – in water)
- Peanut butter (plastic jars)
- Pasta, Rice, Macaroni and Cheese (packaged)
- Hot and cold cereal (packaged, family-sized)
Note: All cans must be labelled and undented. No opened packaging accepted no products that need to be refrigerated, homemade foods or expired products. Healthy variations preferred.
